Of nil the vnlualilo npt3 wlileli rt

them all, nnd that pnrlleulm nuullty
goes Under the genernl ol fully ileserlp
tlve name of "polne" Tim terni Implies
a very preat denl nnd presuppose" n thor
oughly Wcll-b.ilHiiccd outlook.
What the model n uoimin renlU Inokfl
more than nn thins cIkp, nnd what bIip
should above nil Ftrle to nctiuhe, Is tlili
plft of polee I'"or II la nlMmpmtnnt that
File dhould be Its po'sescor Without a
well-balanced outlook nnd n calm,
composed nnsurantp of manner she never
will Ret nnywhete at all However, this
calln BBsurnnco of mnnnei should not lie
merely a suiface thin?, assumed for the.
due Impresslnit of one's neighbors. II
ought to ro verj much ilceper nnd prove
the oytwnrd nnd visible-slK" of a very
clear vision and a knowledge of what one
Is roIor to Ret.
The very youiiK woman Is seldom ovor
glfted with poise. Kor she has not lived
long1 enoURh to naiulre It fultv. nnd, al
though apparently she may have plenty
of self-assurance, life nnd the passlnR of
the, years nie really what develop the
quality most successfully.
Of all the pltiahlcjspcctacles one can
encounter, the woman who is totally
without poise Is about the worst. Kor her
dolnBs ami her snylnss arc all nervous,
heedless nnd without an sort of reason
or rhyme to them. She Is only successful
in one. particular line, and that Is in
catting Into dlfllculut situations nnd Im
possible positions from which she may
have, considerable difficulty In extrlcatlriR
herself. Kor without poise one really raii
not achieve, and life becomes iinmciniiiK
The woman who docn't know her own
mind Is another e.uunplo of the type.
8he drifts aimlessly nlotiK, without pei
scnallty, without object and with remark
ably little ambition bejond the llcetliiR
moment or the passing pleasuie.
i olorless Individuals are quite plenteous
nowndajx. Their comings and roIiirs
leave so little Impies'lnn on our minds
tbnl we have illflleiilly In even recollect
irffi their outward nppearanie. And ns
far as r-hiitnrtrr Rots, thev ate entirely
destitute of Mint personnlltv without
which one leallv can achieve notlilMX.
"Ho n person I ' the ethical text-books

' should Mtilvo tu cultivate will-power, per-
minnllty, fi-elhiKS, alms, ambitions, so that
wo mn.v take our shale In the world's
work nnd the world's happiness.
Tim iu hievemelit of personality Is only
broiiRlit about by faclnt; the situation
boldly ami asking ourselves "What do t
UiIpiiiI to do vviiii my life.' Am I roIik
to develop Into something inteieatliiR,
sointtlilnK useful, something Kind and
MioiiR, noniethliii! which will lount as
worth while in n. world which promises
so much and can give so much If only
one knows the rlultt way to set to woik
nnd tho rlcht nttltuop to take?"

'"PHIS Nemo Week is an event of vast
- Importance to all womankind. For
more than two years the corset business has
been a riot of fadB and freaks. Corsets were
little more than rags. Some women wore no
corsets, others were induced to desert the
corset-friends of a life-time to join the ab
surd, disfiguring and unhealthful "slouch."
But women are now wearing real corcets,
and have risen en masse to demand the Btyle
and healthful comfort that the Nemo alone
can give. As a result, the sale of Nemo
Corsets, especially the old, well-known and
favorite models, is greater than ever.
Nemo Week marks the annual high tide in
the corset trade. At that time, dealers
everywhere have full lines of Nemo Corsets,
You can get the exact model and size you
need. Therefore, NEMO WEEK is the
BEST TIME to buy Nemo Corsets.
